The latest season of Coke Studio started on a low note as compared to the previous series, after their version of the national anthem failed to impress fans who had high expectations for the tenth season of the music production franchise, that too, at a time when the country was celebrating its 70 years of Independence.
Even then, fans had hoped that the rendered version was the only ill that would trouble them this season. Apparently that proved to be wrong. The reviews of the recently released takes by the franchise seem to be on a harsh receiving end.
When it comes to reforming the classics, Coke Studio hasn’t just come out with some brilliant renditions, but within the last nine years has also nailed with takes on legendary classics, including ‘Rang’ and ‘Afreen Afreen’. While maintaining its position in the public eye for a long time, and reforming the music industry, Coke Studio has given some brilliant performances by the greatest artistes of the country.
But its take on ‘Sayonee’, in the current season, has sadly missed the mark. The song was heavily criticised by anyone and everyone, calling out Coke Studio for its terrible take on it.
The song has also been bashed on social media with Coke Studio enthusiasts taking to strongly critiquing the cover.
